An estimated 1,851,000 people in Pennsylvania — or 16.5 percent of the population age 5 and older — have a disability, according to the Center for Personal Assistance Services, individuals with disabilities come from every background, socio-economic status, gender and age.
October is the kickoff month for year-round programs across the country that highlight the abilities and skills of all Americans. In Centre County, the theme of the month is “Diversability,” which emphasizes the varying abilities and talents of people with disabilities.
Penn State faculty, staff and students as well as local school and community members from areas throughout the county are invited and encouraged to attend these events.
The intent of the “Diversability” events is to provide an opportunity for individuals to discuss and explore questions about accessibility, equality and inclusion for people with disabilities in their communities, including work, school, home and recreation.
